Summer holiday testing

School’s out for summer!

It might be the summer holidays but testing still remains an essential part of stopping the spread of coronavirus.

We should all keep up the good practice of continuing to take a rapid lateral flow test twice a week, if you don’t have symptoms. If you have symptoms of coronavirus you should take a PCR test.

Parents and guardians should make sure that secondary school aged children continue with the twice weekly testing as they have done during term time. Tests can be collected from pharmacies, community collection points and ordered online for delivery to your home.

Don’t forget to report your results whether they’re negative, positive or void.

Meeting up outside to keep safe

Most legal restrictions have now been lifted however we all should remain cautious.

Keeping up with infection control practices, like regularly washing your hands, wearing a face covering in crowded spaces and meeting outdoors, are essential in helping to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Advice for staying safe
